Nate’s Monday Morning Message
Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message! Thanksgiving is upon us friends, and before we know it 2017 will be coming to a close. As the hustle and bustle of the season gets underway, I hope you will take some time this week to be intentionally grateful for the abundance in your life. Abundance doesn’t always equal money…it can be as simple as a meaningful conversation over a cup of coffee, or the beautiful sunrise you witnessed as you began your day, or the pitter patter of little feet scampering across the floor in your home.
We tend to focus our thoughts about abundance in regard to money or material possessions…when in fact abundance comes in all shapes and forms, and true abundance can’t be bought or sold because it is an attitude that that lives inside of us. Wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving! Let’s make it a great week!
